For the letter I, I was tempted to go with Iron Butterfly, but I am going with Iron Maiden.

As usual these songs are in alphabetical order, they are what I thought when I made the list, that could change over time.

And feel free to disagree with 1 or 10 of my choices--or anywhere in between.
And post your lists if you feel so inclined...

Aces High
Die With Your Boots On
Flight of Icarus
Losfer Words (Big 'Orra)
Phantom of the Opera
The Prisoner
Remember Tomorrow
Run to the Hills
Running Free
The Trooper

So I prefer 80's Maiden...

all great choices.

I'd have to try and stick Murders in the Rue Morgue and probably Infinite Dreams in there somewhere.

I'm a Huge fan of Paul D'ianno and those first 2 Albulms, But from the Bruce Dickerson days, Piece of Mind and Number of the beast are hard to follow. Can you play with Maddness may just be My favorite Maiden song of all time though. :thumb:

There are just so many...I mean.

Wasted Years, obviously, is one of their finest. The essence of 80's Maiden imho.
Two minutes to midnight.
Fear of the dark, afraid to shoot strangers and holy smoke as far as 90's Maiden goes.

The newer ones are pretty good, too. Coming home, Blood Brothers, these colours don't run.

I would have a hard time to pick 10, let alone 20.
Take a look at the "best of the b sides" album, too. Juanita, that girl, reach out. All VERY, VERY good songs.

I did consider the covers, but decided to stick with their own songs--there were already a lot to choose from.

But they have done some fun covers.

But as for the list I have decided the top 2 are Losfer Words (See video above) & Flight of Icarus
